A comprehensive make-up manual that details all aspects of make-up application, solutions to common problems, as well as tips and tricks for perfecting your look every time. 

Starting with Skin Secrets, make-up artist Lisa Potter-Dixon teaches you everything you need to know about skincare and perfecting your base, before moving into sections that target specific areas of the face. Chapters and looks are organized by feature, each starting with an introduction to the area and followed by looks that show it off best. In Beautiful Brows, Lisa explains why it is so important to maintain and enhance your brows, before styling a Natural, Full, Ombre, and Feathered look. In Go with the Glow, she explains why we add color and takes a look at Contouring, Strobing, Blushing, and Bronzing. In The Eyes Have It, things really get interesting, with looks for Smokey, Colorful, Nude, Smudged, Bejewelled, and Glittery Eyes that will makes your eyes pop. And in Luscious Lips, Lisa helps you understand the difference between matte, glossy, and smooth lipsticks, pencils, glosses, and all that's in between, before teaching you how to perfect the Red, Nude, Ombre, Matte, High Gloss, and Bold Lip, no matter what your style. Finally, in Lisa's signature style, she offers up Looks to Dazzle, from Extreme Glitter to using sequins, feathers, and transfers, as well as enhancing your look with accessories in a series of features. These also give instruction on which tools to use when, a handy in-flight routine that will help you step off the plane feeling like a goddess, fixing make-up mishaps, and finding your perfect wedding look. So whether you’re looking for a fun and youthful, elegant and sophisticated, or one-off look, Lisa will show you how to make the most of your facial features and complexion in this her Make-up Manual.
